What to Look for in a Gift for a 7-Year-Old

Imagination While 7-year-old girls may know the difference between make-believe and reality, they still have plenty of imagination to entertain themselves and amuse others. Whether it’s a hands-on activity or a creative outlet to bring her dreams to life, you can't go wrong with a gift that helps her explore her own imagination.

Interaction Help your 7-year-old acclimate to the world around her with gifts and activities that strengthen her ability to communicate with others. Make the most of her silly sense of humor and help her develop social confidence. Games, karaoke, and other gifts that help her build confidence are great for her social development.

Creativity Most 7-year-olds are full of ideas and energy—plus, they're refining their fine motor skills by the day. Give her a fun, engaging way to explore her budding creativity and you’ll be delighted to see the fun and interesting things she comes up with. Choose from options like needlepoint, connector construction kits, and more.
